If you can hear your neighbours through your common or party wall, then Total Noise Control can reduce this sound by 50 - 90% or more.

Blocks out the majority of noises from the other side

"Barrierboard, it probably saved us the cost of moving"
Roy Krieger South Yarra VIC.

Typical party wall - before and after results

► Before   ► After (system BB Ex 2)
140 mm wide hollow concrete masonry wall with 10mm plasterboard direct stick to both sides of the wall results in a measured performance of Rw 44   The addition of Barrierboard directly fixed to one side only of the hollow concrete masonry wall now results in a measured performance of Rw 53
 
Rw 44   Rw 53

This is an average improvement over the original wall of Rw 9, this may be perceived as a reduction of approx 75% over the original sound.

To reduce the amount of sound that you can hear even further a simple addition and change to how Barrierboard is installed will improve the overall reduction to Rw 59.

► After (system BB Ex 3)
The addition of Barrierboard directly fixed to furring channels which are fastened directly to the masonry wall with added Total Noise Control insulation in between the Barrierboard and the wall
Rw 59

This is an average improvement of Rw 15, this may be perceived as a reduction of over 90% of the original sound.

There are a number of Barrierboard systems that may suit your application so Contact Us for further details
